Vicki Burns Trio
Vicki Burns is a jazz singer who has been delighting audiences for years. A vocalist with impeccable taste, a sure sense of rhythm and a glorious tone, she infuses each song with heartfelt expression, digging into the lyrics and melody for their richest interpretation. No wonder the great jazz drummer, Max Roach, once described Vicki's singing as a gold mine and our local treasure, Kenny Washington, lists her as one of his favorite vocalists.
Vicki has performed nationally and internationally and now returns to the Sound Room with David Udolf on piano and Ron Belcher on bass, for an intimate evening of Jazz!
In 2005, Vicki released her debut CD which features original music, lyrics and arrangements of both familiar and rare standards. Entitled Siren Song it is produced by Vicki and the acclaimed flugel hornist, Dmitri Matheny, who also arranges some of the material. Matheny described her voice as a wonderful, rich instrument. Jazz critic Dan Ouellette said of her debut recording that she succeeds with rapturous, mystical beauty.In October of 2008, Vicki released a second CD, Vicki Burns Quartet: Live At Anna's Jazz Island which received broad critical acclaim and airplay.
